PT1 Series-Transient Voltage Surge Suppressors

Parallel-connected Design

Reliability Means Value

PT1 Series STABILINE Transient Voltage Surge Suppressors deliver worry-free performance with an innovative and proven technology design. The tested single-pulse surge current capacity (per mode) meets NEMA recommendations. Sand-packed MOV arrays equally share current to suppress transients before they reach sensitive loads while capacitors filter out high frequency noise and low-level transients. The PT1 Series is designed and tested to withstand surge currents in accordance with ANSI/IEEE recommendations.

Instantaneous Protection

PT1 Series Features

Four Surge Amp Capacity Ratings to Choose From (25kA, 50kA, 80kA, and 100kA Per Mode) Single Phase 120/240 VAC and Three Phase (208Y/120, 380Y/220, 480Y/277 and 600Y/347 VAC) Models Prewired Pigtail Conductors LED Visual Protection Status Standard Form C Dry Contacts for Remote Alarm Monitoring 5-Year Warranty UL and cUL Listed

PT1 Series Transient Voltage Surge Suppressors respond immediately and reliably to repeated high-current lightning incidents and other transient voltage surges. All PT1 Series models are designed to exceed the minimum performance criteria of Bellcore and withstand larger impulses referenced in IEEE.

Superior Internal Construction

The PT1 Series design ensures dependable operation. The suppression filter components are bolted directly to copper bus bars, lowering system impedance and clamping voltage and increasing reliability. Measuring only 7W x 7H x 5D, units install in tight spaces. The NEMA 4X fiberglass-reinforced polyester (FRP) housing features a nonremovable cover for protection against tampering. LEDs for all phases illuminate to clearly indicate protection is active.

For ease of installation, all PT1 Series units are prewired with 24 stranded #10 AWG pigtail conductors. The conductors can be cut to fit the application to permit the shortest connection for optimum performance. All PT1 Series units are equipped with single form C dry contacts for remote alarm monitoring. Two conduit installation kits are available; PT1-INSTALLKIT-A has a 3/4 x 3 metallic nipple; PT1-INSTALLKIT-B provides 18 flexible conduit. Each kit contains all associated hardware required to complete the installation.
